Tummy Tuck Forum - C-Section Scar Do I need Another Scar?

I do not like my C-Section scar. My loose skin hangs over it and I want it gone. Can the old scar be removed with the surgery or will I end up with 2 scars?

Most C-Section Scars are horizontal. Better OB-Gyn surgeons try to hide the scar low in a bikini bathing suit pattern. The scar has 2 components, the surface, and the deeper components that stick the surface to the underlying muscle and fascia. When there is excess tissue, I can almost always include the surface scar in the tissue to be removed. I can also place the new scar in a better position under a modest bathing suit line if the older C-section scar was too high. I can usually also remove most if not all of a vertically placed Cesarian section scar, all if there is enough loose skin. Here is one of the many examples of a C-Section scar being included in my Tummy Tuck sculpture. In this next example UK Tummy Tuck, I was able to move a high Cesarian scar to a lower location.

Analysis of the deeper components of the scars seems to be rarely done on Plastic Surgeon's sites, nor in the literature. Video Tummy Tuck Healing Tissues and How They Move is one of the examples of documenting the problem of scar and tissues before surgery and the results of the abdominoplasty. In addition they show the healing and evolution of this healing demonstrating the fine surface deeper tissue scar evolution over time. This is a belly dancer giving a unusual look at fine tissue movement issues.

Hope this helps,

My c-section scar was raised and stayed for a long time. It made me self conscious.. I tried a bunch of cheap creams, like the stuff you get at CVS, but it didn’t really work. . I used this cream Spam Scam Removed scars for around 3 weeks and have seen a difference in the texture as it has lightened that portion to a great extent. After doing tremendous researches , I finally looked forward in buying this product.. I may use it further more to complete the course because I’m really very much satisfied by it as it has really shown drastic effects in such sort span of time. Consult the website if you want any more details if you want. good luck  :)

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Poster from Pakistan was banned for spam. How can you trust someone who writes such drivel without proof?

Our patient's  Scar Care was a critical component of their education. This included both massaging therapy with a scar care cream topical as well as After Surgery Compression Garments, both Stage 1 Compression Gynecomastia Garments and Stage 2 Gynecomastia Garments were critical to achieve the results seen on my many pages. We chose our garments specific to the anatomy of what was sculpted. While originally we let our patients choose if getting a Stage 2 garment, the results were so much better for those using the Stage 2 that we made that garment mandatory for all of our male breast reduction patients.

Look for proof that something really works, not some personal attestations posted by some link spam service. We would love to see some proof by any company of specific critical analysis that their product is superior to others using a technique like our How to Evaluate Before After Pictures.

This has been discussed before in other posts here such as Welcome to our Forum on Scarring, Scar Care, And Scar Revision Plastic Surgery and Scar Care Forum - Hype vs. Proof Which Scar Care is Better?
